But for the sat, a decoder is not on the board. To change channels, etc please research adding the IR BLASTER.
I plan to install a TV tuner card and I need some advice.
First of all, I think that it is probably a good idea to get a card that offers both digital and analog features + FM reception. The Ati PCI Wonder 650 in its various commercial versions (Diamond, Sapphire etc) looks to be about the best going but I am not sure about the software that is offered with it. I am running XP Home without the media features so I will need software to run the card. Is the included Ati program sufficient or should I think of adding a third party offering?
Also, if I subscribe to a satellite service, will I need to buy the decoder, or will the tv card handle that function?
